A-Frame Huts Stole

March6

A-Frame Huts Stole
At Norstead, a model Viking village and trading port near L’Anse aux Meadows in Newfoundland, Canada, the sheep are kept in enclosures with small, A-frame huts. When I was working on this design collection, I kept returning to this photo and had an image of this shape combined with swags of garlands. Several sessions hunting through stitch dictionaries later, I found a border design that includes both the swag motif and a flower bud (or bell) dropped edging, a perfect counterpoint to the hard geometric shapes of the “huts.”
